Social Media To The Rescue: 13-Year-Old Kwaku Needs Help To Fund Kidney Treatment

Kwaku has been diagnosed with post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN)

The family of 13-year-old Kwaku is in dire need of your help to keep him alive.

Kwaku is currently undergoing dialysis treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for his failing kidney.

Kwaku was diagnosed with post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN), a kidney disease that develops between 10 to 14 days after a skin or throat infection.

According to Kwaku’s uncle, Felix, the doctors declared his kidney as 99% damaged and indicated that he needs a kidney transplant in order to live.

Kwaku, however, has been placed on dialysis while his family works on getting a matching kidney donor.

Treating this ailment requires renal dialysis three times a week. Each treatment costs GHS300.

“We were discouraged about proceeding with the treatment because it is very expensive; additionally, Kwaku’s kidney is fast deteriorating. Together as a family, we decided to proceed with the treatment hoping that with continuous care, prayer and support from people like you, Kwaku can continue to live,” Kwaku’s uncle stated.

“We would appreciate a referral to any charitable organisation that helps with matching kidney donors, or provides financial support for children with cases such as Kwaku’s,” he added.

You can help save Kwaku’s life by donating on his GoFundMe page.
